Spending time with friends? Catching a concert? Enjoying the fair food? All of these are simple activities until drinking is involved. Alcohol complicates simple activities, because “just one more before I go” can be that one drink that puts you over the legal limit. If you are headed to the Washington County Fair (7/23-7/28), make arrangements for a designated sober driver, limit your own alcohol intake, or volunteer to be the sober driver. Any person caught with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) over the legal limit will be arrested for a Wisconsin DUI.
Determining Your BAC at the Washington County Fair
Determining BAC may seem like a simple task, but it is much more involved than just gender, weight, and the amount of drinks a person consumes. Factors such as smoking, eating, exercise, and medical conditions also play a role in determining BAC. Each person has a different threshold on any given day or night. A Wisconsin DUI will be affected by the fried food consumed, the amount of physical activity (walking around the fairgrounds), etc.
Driving Sober v. Driving Drunk
A Wisconsin DUI law enforcement officer will conduct traffic stops and arrest any person getting behind the wheel intoxicated. Signs of a drunk driver include the inability to walk to his/her vehicle, a person fumbling with keys, rate of acceleration, speed, and ability to maneuver a vehicle in a safe manner, etc. These are among the many clues that provide reason for an officer to conduct a traffic stop for a Wisconsin DUI.
